So after 80 qualifier matches, 24 of these 50 teams will reach the finals :roll_eyes:


#1967

90 qualifiers


#1968

my bad :rofl:


#1969

55 teams.


#1970

what’s the collective noun for pedants?


#1971

An “Actually” :rofl:


#1972

I thought Fulham were a little unlucky. At 1-0 they were playing well and really deserved an equaliser. The second goal killed the game, of course.

Not quite sure how RL-C doesn’t get more starts for Chelsea.


#1973

Hope Fulham stay up


#1974

Fun and games at The Emirates.


#1975

Great game.


#1976

Yep, i only switched it on to see the score, but it was a very entertaining first half - more steam being let off than the Flying Scotsman at full pelt! :smiley:


#1977

Bullshit penalty and some quality rucks.

Not likely to stay 11 v 11.


#1978

Arsenal battered Spuds for the first half an hour. How they didn’t score more, I don’t know.

Couldn’t see any contact for the pen.


#1979

Which one?


#1980

Spuds

Surprised you asked that, the handball was a bit blatant :grin:


#1981

Well, his hand was deffo up where it shouldn’t have been, but from the camera angles I saw, I couldn’t see the ball hit his hand :thinking:


#1982

I missed the first half hour walking to the ground.


#1983

The lack of protest from the defenders was telling.


#1984

What a goal!
